I stayed in Pension Balerdi with my girlfiriend for two nights in Aug. The owners were amazing, really friendly, knowledgeable about the area and helpful without being any bit intrusive. The room was perfect as was the location in the heart of the old town and really close to the beaches etc. We'll definitely be back!

My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Pension Balerdi in June and we absolutely loved it! Unai and Saray were lovely and super helpful. When we arrived, Unai even lugged our suitcases up the stairs to our room so that we could park our car. The rooms were cozy and nicely decorated and the location couldn't be any better... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Fun decor, lovely hosts (who have tons of tips for things to do and see) and you are right in the center of everything. Steps to the farmers market, pintxos bars and a quick walk over the bridge to Gros!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pension Balerdi guest house is located in the entrance of the Old Part of Donostia-San Sebastian very close to the main remarkable places of the city, such as its port, beaches, monuments and its great gastronomic area. We have completely reformed Pension Balerdi in 2015 in order to offer high confort in every room, which includes a private bathroom. Besides, it is very confortable to visit the most emblematic places of Donostia-San Sebastian on foot such as La Concha beach, the Kursaal Congress Palace, the well-known restaurants and Pintxo bars since all of them are very close to Pension Balerdi. Just 50 meters away there is a car park and, moreover, the urban and interurban lines have its bus stops that will allow you to visit every nook of the city and discover new places of the Basque Country. If you choose to stay in our place, we will try our best to make your stay memorable. ... more   less
